Have you ever lived in a haunted house? A house that it was not the spirits of those who had passed there, but something else that was never human?
Steven LaChance has.
I first heard Steven LaChance's story on a episode of A Haunting. The episode is called Fear House, and is actually one of my favorite episodes from the show.
Steven LaChance and his children moved into what seemed like the perfect home. But it turned into a nightmare.
Whatever is in the Union house is not friendly; it wants to harm. Steven LaChance and his children learned that. That's why they moved.
But, when Steven was contacted by the friend of a woman who moved in that same house with her family, Steven knew he had to help her.
Both Steven LaChance and Helen lived through a nightmare, one that took years to recover from. And I know Steven has shared his story on A Haunting. His story, the very short version of it, was in the book Weird Hauntings, which I have recently read.
But if you have seen his story on A Haunting, or read it online, or in another book, those barely scrape the surface on everything that happened. This book has all the details, and there is a lot that happened. A lot that couldn't be covered in a one hour TV show.
I only found out last year that Steven LaChance had even written a book. I just had to read it, but no libraries near me had it. When I had the money to buy it, I did. And I am glad that I did.
Some people might not believe Steven LaChance; they may think he is lying. But, I believe what happened to him. I've had paranormal experiences since I was a kid, I became a paranormal investigator and my mom grew up in a house haunted by a negative spirit. These type of hauntings, the kind Steven experienced, are definitely real.
And they are terrifying as well as traumatizing.
I'm sure the book was hard for Steven LaChance to write. I'm sure it was hard to write all the horrible things that happened to him. But I thought it was a great book. Steven LaChance has an easy writing style. I was hooked from the first few pages and I just couldn't put the book down.
I'm glad Steven LaChance has shared his story and that he continues to help people who are going through experiences similar to his own. Not every paranormal investigates negative hauntings. It can be dangerous and I understand why there are many who choose not to investigate such hauntings. But I am glad there are people like Steven LaChance, John Zaffis and others who will help those that need it.
This is a great book and I really want to read Steven LaChance's next book.
